Summer Fridays are simply the best – especially when the office celebrates National Doughnut Day and we have the pleasure of starting off our work day with a tasty treat!  The business of doughnuts is booming and now people are flocking to shops that offer hand-crafted, freshly made-to-order doughnuts that range from coconut-pineapple to salted caramel walnut. My favorite doughnut shop of all time? Broad Street Dough Companyin Oakhurst, New Jersey!

But, we’re here to talk about all things liquor.  And I can’t say I ever had a doughnut in liquid form, but I found a couple recipes that can change my life for the better.  Enjoy these fun cocktails and shots and celebrate National Doughnut Day with a little booze!

Jelly Donut Shot

Ingredients:

  • 1 ounce Chambord
  • 1 ounce Bailey’s Irish Cream (or Rumchata)
  • Garnish – sugar for glass rim

Directions: Sprinkle some sugar in a small dish and wet the rim of the glass with a little water. Place glass rim side down in the sugar and make sure entire rim is covered. Pour Chambord 1/2 way full in the shot glass. Take your spoon and place it against the inside of the glass under the sugar but above the Chambord. Place your pourer in the Bailey’s bottle and pour the liquid slowly on the spoon until it fills up most of the way.  Shoot and enjoy!
